“Regulation is an important issue for anyone who takes food from farm to fork, no matter what side of the Atlantic Ocean they’re on. But there are some dramatic differences in how the European Union (EU) and the United States (US) handle food recalls, especially when it comes to communicating the impact of risk to consumers. It’s important to understand and compare existing food recall procedures in Europe to the United States; through knowledge sharing we can learn about and implement best practices for recalls, which are becoming altogether more frequent and complex.”
